"A Little Girly Shabbiness"

The latest inspiration challenge over at Lets Get Shabby is a great one!!!!! Attracted me right from the get go! 
You have to draw your own inspiration from Tallulah Belles Etsy store. The images here are drop dead scrumptious, the hard part was choosing which fabbo image! So after much Ooohing and Ahhing (is that how to spell that? It looks just a little wrong! But you get it right?) I chose The Woodland Whimsy image:

 So 'darn cute!!!! Such a warm vintage feel to it.

I used a photo of my nieces that my parents took while they were visiting recently (they Live in the USA), they had strict instructions to get some shots I could use for my girlie fix!
So here is what I came up with,  just love those colours! Still had the larger butterfly frame from ScrapFX so had to use it, just love the title that matches so perfectly!

 Used my stash of Doilies straight from the local opp shop, the little old ladies must think I am wallpapering the house with them I have bought so many, and they now give me a discount!!!! (But I never take the change!!!) They are so sweet I don't have the heart to tell them I am cutting them up!

I love the excuse to use my doilie stamps they combine with the texture doilies so well (I am saying doilie far too much in this post!!!!)

 The journalling all fitted perfectly on the tag that I coloured with some distress ink so it blended in a little better. No page lately is complete without a little bit if twine or string!
 A close up of those gorgeous butterflies on the frame!

 Painted the Title a few times till I got it right. Thank goodness the chipboard takes a lot of punishment without bending out of shape!
Lastly added a little cluster of left overs in the corner to finish the LO off!

It was awesome fun to do something feminine for a change and I think I am finding them easier with every LO I complete!

Till next time, take care,
